Studies into the demographic trends have shown that black women are the least likely to be contacted by anyone at all on online dating sites.
Though many would like to chalk this up to their appearance, in actuality, black women tend to have nice bodies and age very well, which, all things being equal, would likely make up for their skin color, noses and hair for many desperate online daters. Also, online dating probably has less to do with finding sex flings and more to do with finding long-term partners. I would assert that the main reason that black women are unlikely to be contacted for dates online is that they are utterly unbearable.
I have, in my life, met at least a few black men who I to this day have respect for (I have no problem admitting that people of other races are capable of having positive traits, or that I have met individuals of other races whom I liked and respected – we should always keep it real). I have not, however, ever met a black woman who was the least bit bearable. They are super-aggressive, hate-filled creatures, and it is probable that for every violent black male, there is a bullying black mother behind the scenes.
In other dating demographic news, White men are most likely to be contacted by anyone. This is, of course, because we are awesome.
The fact that most generally tend to stay within their race is encouraging as well, and speaks to the larger issue of the ridiculous, unnatural basis of multiculturalism, generally.
When it comes to dating the rules aren’t always black and white. And when you add race into the equation things can become even more complicated.
The online dating website “Are You Interested” analyzed over 2.4 million interactions on their site and found that Asian women are more likely to get a message from a man of any race—unless those men are Asian.
AYI also found that white men are pursued the most by women of all races—except black women, who are least likely to get a message from anyone.
“I think it’s very disheartening for African-American women” said Beauty Shop guest and The Root.com contributing editor Demetria Lucas. “It’s always the same result and it’s always about how no one’s reaching out for black women. It can get very depressing for someone who is looking for love.”
TIME Magazine reports:
Online dating — as well as regular dating — is a very segregated activity, but a new study suggests that it may not take much to break racial and ethnic barriers.
As much as we like to think that America is a postracial society, Americans still prefer to date someone from their race. Studies have shown that this preference is stronger than almost any other when it comes to finding mates, although it’s not entirely clear why.
White folks, both male and female, overwhelmingly made more contact with whites, which is hardly surprising since there are more white people on the site to choose from. White folks were the most likely to seek out people of another race. Minority groups (those who identify themselves on OKCupid as black, Hispanic, Indian or Asian) were much more likely to stay in their own racial lane when in search of mates online.
Only Asian women didn’t fit this trend. They were more likely to contact white guys than other Asian guys, which my Asian girlfriends tell me is because, in part, they’re not fans of the traditional role that girlfriends and wives have played — and continue to play — in many Asian societies. They were more likely to respond to white guys too, but then again, all races were most likely to respond to white guys.
Again Asian women were among the outliers; once contacted by someone from another race, their interracial exchanges went up 238%. For Asian men it was 222%, and for black women it was more than 100%.
